Are dental x-rays dangerous?

While dental x-rays are invaluable to a dentist in diagnosing dental problems, many patients are concerned about radiation exposure. In our dental office, we have eliminated these worries by using digital x-rays or computed dental radiography in Wilmington, DE, which requires up to 90 percent less radiation than conventional film!

CDR imaging can reveal things that conventional x-rays cannot. The images can be magnified 300 times their normal size, for example, to enhance diagnosis. They can also be manipulated to correct contrast, and the color can be adjusted to reveal hidden problems, including emerging cavities and infections.

So, worry no more! If you need an x-ray in our Wilmington, DE dental office, you can rest assured that you will not be exposed to significant amounts of radiation—especially compared with radiographs used during previous decades. Our modern digital x-rays are also better for the environment because they require no harsh chemicals or disposal.

In our dental office, we are committed to providing our patients with a safe and comfortable dental experience.
